The purpose of the Life, Marriage and Family Ministry is to provide or facilitate a suite of Catholic-based services and programmes to help parishioners cope with the challenges that they may face on the journey of life.
The services include:
|Mature married couples accompany those who are journeying towards marriage. They answer questions and offer advice based on their many years of experience.|
|The Marriage Course is a series of seven sessions, designed to help married couples to invest in their relationship and build strong marriages. For further details visit https://themarriagecourses.org/|
|The parish priest and a team of volunteers offer various forms of counselling. The team includes a professional psychologist, trained trauma counsellors and an AIDS counsellor. Those who need help should contact the parish priest in the first instance.|
|Home and Hospital Visits|
|Warm, friendly, compassionate parishioners are willing to visit parishioners who need a listening ear or some comfort, in their homes or in hospitals. Contact the parish office.|
|It hurts to lose someone whom you love. GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of parishioners who will accompany you through one of life's most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Go to https://www.griefshare.org/ for more information|
Any parishioner wishing to volunteer their services to, or make use of, any of the above should contact the parish office
or one of the steering team members.
